PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police said one car struck another, sending it off a street and into a group of pedestrians, killing an 11-year-old girl and injured four other people.

The 51-year-old man driving the car that struck the other car Friday showed signs of impairment and was arrested and jailed on suspicion of manslaughter and other charges.
